romney went after the president on foreign policy today in a speech at the virginia military institute. >> i believe that if america doesn't lead, others will. others who don't share our interests and our values and the world would grow darker for our friends and for us. america's security and the cause of freedom cannot afford four more years like the last four. >> shep: his campaign was firing back before governor romney even said a single word. running a new ad, quoting critics who call the governor's foreign policy wreckless and amateurish. a new gallup poll shows governor romney gaining on the president since their first debate last week. before the debate, the president had a five-point lead in the poll and now they're dead even. look at this poll from the pugh research center, this out this afternoon the this is an important one. governor romney now leads the president by four points among likely voters. after trailing in that same poll by eight points a few weeks ago. we have team fox coverage. ed henry is in california. cal cameron in virginia. the governor covered a lot of gr

has just gotten worse. today, for example, romney gave a speech trying to sell himself as incredible commander in chief but his list of missteps is unprecedented. his disstrous british trip. he was labeled "mitt the twit," calling the operation that led to gadhafi's death a mission trip and never mind the cold war is over. maybe we wouldn't -- shouldn't be surprised that his foreign policy agenda is a mess. his team includes over a dozen former advisers to president bush. in fact, bush's defense secretary, donald rumsfeld, called romney's speef, terrific, comprehensive speech. our latest poll shows that america's people don't buy romney as commander in chief. he trails the president on that 47 to 39%. and he trails the president by 6% on foreign policy. for decades, republicans have had the edge over democrats when it comes to national security but thanks to this president's strength and romney's weakness, that trend is over. joining me now is richard wolffe, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com and an msnbc political analyst and brian, a senior fellow at the american for
